As Seen on TV

Let it never be said that we under-utilized our book trailer! Reactions to the longer version, were so good, we went and cut this 30 second commercial spot which is now airing on a television screen near you (at least if you live in or around a major metropolitan area). Click, enjoy, re-click!

Hitting Ye Olde Costco

Attention all (northern) Idahoans! On Saturday, September 24, I’ll be snacking plentifully on samples, watching 3D teasers of Tron in TV alley, and signing, signing, signing copies of The Dragon’s Tooth at the Costco in Coeur d’Alene. Do, please, join me! I’ll be kicking things off at 1pm, and hoisting hardbacks into passing carts until I grow weary, I run out of hardbacks, or the employees toss me out the side door.

And to all you readers and bulk food buyers of Spokane, WA, fret not! I’ll be hitting your Costco (Sprague St.) on October 1.

Who Wants a Boxing Monkey Patch?

Every last man, woman, and child, that’s who.

Joel Courtney wore one in the The Dragon’s Tooth book trailer. Cyrus Smith is wearing his on the book cover. And we’ve got more…

If you want an embroidered monkey patch of your own (while supplies last!), here’s whatcha gotta do.

1. Tweet a pic of yourself holding a copy of The Dragon’s Tooth or The Drowned Vault in any bookstore. [UPDATE: or post that photo on my facebook wall here. UPDATE#2: or better yet, post that photo on the new Ashtown Burials facebook wall here]

2. Include the hashtag, #ashtown

3. When contacted, provide your physical address.

4. When your patch arrives, attach its shiny, embroidered awesomeness to your book-bag, backpack, jacket, or jeans (etc.).

5. Wear with pride.
